Maula Jatt Production Story
The director gave a statement about the upcoming film Maula Jatt which is an adaption of the film Maula Jatt. He quoted:
“This will be my take on gandasa films, which are blamed for the death of Lollywood. I think the gandasa genre was a missed opportunity for Pakistani cinema. What better choice to utilize it then by paying homage to the cult classic Maula Jatt.”
